Belfast has always been a city with a certain character.
Framed by heavy industry and the trauma ordinary people have endured, it's a city rich in community, one proud of its heritage while also pursuing a positive vision of the future.
As a result, clubbing in Belfast has always had an edge, a passion, that other cities struggle to match, giving it a highly localised flavour.
AVA Festival connects Belfast - and the wider cross-border Irish electronic communities - with the world, growing in strength with each passing year.
Hitting London for a one off Printworks takeover on March 14th - TICKETS - AVA Festival has assembled a fantastic line up that showcases the vitality of their outlook.
Ahead of this, Clash invited OG Belfast selector Timmy Stewart to compose a mix informed by the city he grew up in, and it's a fantastic glimpse into the raw energy of the Northern Irish club experince.
